If you’re at all acquainted with winters in Pennsylvania, you know it’s an extra challenge to keep your skin glowing. That’s one reason we at Best Impression Med Spa in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, recommend regular HydraFacials® to keep your skin hydrated and cleansed of impurities.
As the most trusted med spa in the area for over 30 years, Robert Mirabile, MD, Vivian Hsu, MD, and the team are passionate about keeping you confident in your appearance through the skin care treatments best suited to you.
For most of our patients, that strategy includes HydraFacials. Here’s why.
What is a HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial is a noninvasive treatment that uses a patented, suction-based device to treat a variety of common skin concerns. The facial consists of a proprietary three-step process to treat issues from acne to aging, promoting overall skin health in the process.
The device uses hydradermabrasion to gently exfoliate your skin both chemically and mechanically.
You may have heard of microdermabrasion, a popular and highly effective device-based treatment that uses micro crystals to exfoliate the skin. Hydradermabrasion technology allows for similar results from a much gentler approach.
The HydraFacial’s three-step process allows us to target many of your skin’s issues in a brief 30-45 minute session with no downtime or pain. Unless you’re experiencing active skin inflammation, sensitive skin can handle this treatment to quell skin dryness, congestion, signs of aging, and more.
How does the HydraFacial work?
HydraFacial’s patented device uses suction to draw out facial impurities like dirt, pollution, and blackheads while infusing the skin with HydraFacial proprietary serums. These serums include hydrating and anti-aging ingredients like hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and peptides.
The procedure consists of three distinct phases: cleansing, extracting, and hydrating.
Phase 1: Cleanse
We deeply cleanse and exfoliate the skin using a gentle infusion of glycolic and salicylic acids. Glycolic acid buffs the surface of the skin to reveal a smooth texture while improving hydration levels. Salicylic acid penetrates deep into the pores to help with the extraction process.
Phase 2: Extract
Step two uses the vacuum technology of the HydraFacial device to pull blackheads and sebaceous filaments out of your pores with less risk of damage compared to manual extractions and at-home pore suction alternatives.
Phase 3: Hydrate
In the final phase, the device’s technology simultaneously purifies pores and delivers hydrating and anti-aging powerhouse ingredients to the skin. We help you choose a customized blend of serums designed to be used only in a HydraFacial to treat your skin’s specific needs.
How often should you get a HydraFacial?
Many of our patients see their skin transform after just one HydraFacial treatment. However, to maintain optimal long-term results, we recommend scheduling monthly HydraFacials. You can customize your treatment frequency according to your budget and skin needs.
